Creating new 3D hand assets for your Leap Motion projects can be a real challenge. That’s why, based on your feedback, we’ve massively automated and streamlined the pipeline for connecting 3D models to our Core Assets with Hands Module 2.0 – so what used to take hours only takes a minute or two. You can […]

Update (June 8, 2017): The UI Input Module has been deprecated, as 3D interfaces are now handled by the Leap Motion Interaction Engine. Learn more on our blog. Unity Widgets are back – with a new name and massively streamlined functionality! Just released for our Unity Core Assets, the UI Input Module provides a simplified interface […]

In rebuilding our Unity developer toolset from the ground up, we started by rearchitecting the interfaces that receive data from the Leap Motion device. Moving up the tech stack, we then refactored most of the mid-level Unity scripts that pair the Leap hand data with 3D models and manages those representations. Most recently, we’ve moved […]

Update (June 8, 2017): Detection Utilities functions are now best handled by the Interaction Engine (e.g. Camera-Facing Open Hand exists in example scripts in the Interaction Manager). Learn more on our blog. With this week’s Unity Core Asset release, we’ve made a few changes to our Pinch Utilities – including some new features that extend […]

It’s been five months since we launched the VR tracking beta, and since then we’ve made massive strides. In 2015, we’re building on this momentum with new resources for developers, while advancing support for several key VR platforms. In this post, I’d like to reflect on the year that we just left behind, and what’s coming in 2015. Here are just a few snapshots of the year ahead.

This week at CES, Mercedes-Benz unveiled their latest concept car with technology plucked from the pages of science fiction – including one of our latest prototypes. Embedded into the console, Leap Motion’s Meadowhawk modules allow drivers to access an experimental natural user interface. Visitors at CES can also see Leap Motion technology featured in a demo by Hyundai, as well as a standalone demo that our team is bringing to the showcase. While these are early concept demos, we’re excited to drive the future of touchless interaction in 2015.
